Chicago Comedian Mike Stanley selected Bobbr to refresh his web presence in order to improve his personal brand with fans. Mike’s requirements focused on the ability to easy manage the content within the site including upcoming gigs, merchandise, performance videos and images, and a blog he wanted to write while on tour. Additionally, Mike wanted fans to be able to easily take the conversation about his content to Facebook and Twitter, expanding his reach into the popular social channels where his fans WANT to interact.
The site met all of Mike’s requirements and pushed the envelope around site design. We implemented a cool, fresh approach to browsing videos on the site with a side-scrolling gallery where videos could be watched inline OR within their own pages to allow for Facebook likes and commenting.
We implemented an open-source event management system to allow Mike to easily manage his upcoming shows and venues. A custom API was also written allowing for these events (and any other content on the site) to be retrieved in JSON format over HTTP. We used this technology to stream his events on to a custom splash page at MikeStanleyComedy.com.
